Nancy Hanley


1 Mango, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
3 roma or plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
Zest of 1 lime
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 Tb. minced fresh ginger root
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. kosher salt

For the fish:
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 ½ Tbs. grated orange zest
¼ cup fresh orange juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
4 - 4 to 5 ounce tilapia fillets

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Make salsa first so the flavors can mellow. Combine all salsa ingredients in a glass bowl. Stir to blend, and set aside at room temperature until fish has finished cooking.

In a shallow baking dish that’s large enough to hole the fish fillets in a single layer, combine the olive oil, orange zest, orange juice, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Rinse the fillets and pat them dry on paper towels. Place them in the baking dish and turn to coat with the seasonings. Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish can be flaked with a fork.

Place fillets on a platter, and spoon the salsa over them to serve.
